Abigail, in the case that you decide to return, I just wanted to say a couple things. First, I really liked both of your suggestions, especially the second one (which is one I was planning on commenting on eventually as well). Ozymandias post did seem quite brutal to me also, and I don't appreciate some of the comments and judgements they made, nor do I wish for you to think that the thinking represents every monk here. No one monk does.
I have only been here for a little longer than you have. So far the experience here has been great, its a neat envioronment. I noticed your posts right away, and since then any time I see a node with "--Abigail" at the end I always make sure to go back and read it again to make sure I realized all the complexities. I wouldn't have even posted to Obfuscation at all if it hadn't been for seeing some of your posts and being inspired.
So... I just wanted to share. I morn your departure... and hope to celebrate your return.
